Jennifer Warnes on touring with Leonard Cohen: “A hundred girls in every port” & “men [who] feel like they’re his deepest buddies”

There are a hundred girls in every port. I mean, 150 million girls, all who seem to know him [Leonard Cohen] as deeply as the others. And they’re not all that jealous of each other, because he does tend to make people feel like they’re very special. The men, too, feel like they’re his deepest buddies, comrades in the trenches.
